Does Funny = Money?

Location: Rahway Recreation Center, Rahway, New Jersey
Commentators: David Sturchill, McKenzie Mitchell

This is from WrestlePro, a promotion I’ve heard about before but I don’t think I’ve ever seen a full show. From the description, it seems like it’s going to be a comedy show and that’s appropriate given that it’s the first show of Wrestlemania weekend. Hopefully the show has some redeeming value to it, but I’m not getting my hopes up. Let’s get to it.

– Last week on SMW TV… The Field of Eight for the Volunteer Slam’s Championship Tournament has been confirmed: Brian Lee, Tim Horner, Robert Gibson, Dixie Dy-No-Mite, Dirty White Boy, Jimmy Golden, Paul Orndorff, and Buddy Landel… The relationship between Dutch Mantel and Carl Stiles appears to be over… Bob Armstrong has fined Orndorff $2,500 for his piledriver parade, but that’s just a drop in the bucket for Mr. Wonderful… Buddy Landel made his in-ring debut and miraculously didn’t pull a no-show…

Smoky Mountain Wrestling TV – April 11th, 1992


– Last week on SMW TV… “Primetime” Brian Lee pinned Dutch Mantel to keep his spot in the Volunteer Slam Championship Tournament, despite a pre-match attack by the Dirty White Boy… For Heaven’s sake, Jim Cornette once again failed to deliver footage of his team, and yes, I ripped the joke off from the comments section, so thank you Danny Omega. Armstrong ruled his team must appear this coming week, or their removed from the tournament… Dixie Dy-no-Mite debuted and might have the most annoying wrestling name to type on a regular basis… Tim Horner, the Dirty White Boy, and Killer Kyle were all victorious in showcase matches (my fancy word for “enhancement” opponents).
